Event - Base 3 Meet the BBC Weather Team

19 November 2014

Base 3 had a wonderful morning when they were joined by the BBC weather presenter Sara Blizzard and a member of the technical crew, Ray Smithson.

They set up the classroom like a TV studio and gave a demonstration of how the weather is presented. The children and staff then had their moment of fame as each become weather girls and boys in front of the camera. We all soon discovered that is not as easy as it looks on the TV!

The children learnt a lot about how weather information is gathered from the Met Office and the technical side of broadcasting to the nation.

The vote was unanimous that Mr Leonard was the best presenter. His blue shirt disappeared into the blue background and he appeared headless on screen!
